Picturing Poverty: London past and present
From Charles Booth's 19th century maps and early photographs of East End tenements, to rich-poor divides in Hackney, this discussion will consider old and new ways of seeing poverty - understanding the underlying political processes that serve to reproduce and reduce it. Sue Donnelly is head of Archives at LSE. Mishka Henner is a photographic artist. Gillian Rose is professor of cultural geography at the Open University. Mike Seaborne is senior curator of photographs at the Museum of London.
Evaluating Limits Algebraically (Part 2)
This video demonstrates how to evaluate a limit algebraically. When we evaluate limits that are not continuous, we can use algebra to eliminate the zero from the denominator and then evaluate the limit using substitution. When evaluating limits algebraically we can eliminate the zero in the denominator by factoring or simplifying the function. (2:47)
The Holloway Series in Poetry: Lisa Robertson
HOLLOWAY POET - LISA ROBERTSON The University is proud to present a feature poetry reading by the 2006 Holloway Lecturer in the Practice of Poetry, Lisa Robertson. Robertson's poetry is full of delights, each one animated by an agile intelligence and a wry wit.

Norman Borlaug: 60 Years of Fighting Hunger
Norman E. Borlaug was awarded the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize for developing methods to help the world's poorest nations feed themselves. Born of Norwegian descent, Dr. Borlaug was raised near Cresco, a small farming community in northeast Iowa. He earned a B.S. in forestry and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in plant pathology from the University of Minnesota. From 1942 to 1944, Dr. Borlaug worked as a microbiologist for E.I. Dupont de Nemours Foundation, in charge of research on industrial and agricultural

Math in Society
Math in Society is a free, open textbook. This book is a survey of mathematical topics, most non-algebraic, appropriate for a college-level topics course for liberal arts majors. The text is designed so that most chapters are independent, allowing the instructor to choose a selection of topics to be covered. Emphasis is placed on the applicability of the mathematics. Material for each topic is covered in the main text, with additional depth available through exploration exercises appropriate for
Peer 2 Peer University
The Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) is an online community of open study groups for short university-level courses. Think of it as online book clubs for open educational resources. The P2PU helps you navigate the wealth of open education materials that are out there, creates small groups of motivated learners, and supports the design and facilitation of courses. Students and tutors get recognition for their work, and we are building pathways to formal credit as well.Currently P2PU is in a pilot ph
Freshman Organic Chemistry I
This is the first semester in a two-semester introductory course focused on current theories of structure and mechanism in organic chemistry, their historical development, and their basis in experimental observation. The course is open to freshmen with excellent preparation in chemistry and physics, and it aims to develop both taste for original science and intellectual skills necessary for creative research.
Thick Lens Model
The EJS Thick Lens model allows the user to simulate a lens (mirror) by adjusting the physical properties of a transparent (reflecting) object and observing the object's effect on a beam of light. The user can adjust the concavity of the sides, the index of refraction and its environment, and the height and width of the object as well as the size of the incident light and the horizontal position of the transparent object. Spherical aberration can be observed at large angles. You can examine
Process Dynamics and Controls, Fall 2008
Introduction to process control in chemical engineering. Application of linearization methods to the analysis of open-loop and closed-loop process dynamics. Stability analysis and gain/phase margins. Controller modes and settings. Applications to the control of level, flow, heat exchangers, reactors, and elementary multivariable systems.
USA Mathematics and Statisticsematical Talent Search
This is a mathematics competition open to all U.S. middle and high school students. Problems are published on the website four times a year one month before solutions are due. Problems range in difficulty from being within the reach of most high school students to challenging the best students in the nation. Students may use any materials -- books, calculators, computers -- but all work must be their own. This year's special topic is expected value.
Open Wide and Trek Inside
Open Wide and Trek Inside has several objectives. The first is to help students understand major concepts related to oral health. By focusing on the science of the oral environment, the module goes beyond the traditional "brushing and flossing" curriculum and presents to students the ways science has helped people understand how to take proper care of their mouths and the structures within. The second objective of the module is to engage students in the nature of science through inquiry. As st
BRUSHster is an online painting machine for all ages. This shockwave interactive includes more than forty brushes and customizable size, transparency, texture, and stroke options. A rainbow palette, along with a toolbox of special effects that blur, ripple, smudge, blend, and fragment your designs help make BRUSHster a full-feature painting program. You can save up to eight paintings as you work, which makes it easy to backtrack if you change your mind. Saved images will remain active and "re-pa
Visualizing Cultures opens a window on modern times by wedding popular images and scholarly commentary in ways that were not technologically possible until recently. Focusing to date on Japan and Asia in the modern world, these units enable users to “see” historical moments as they were actually depicted for mass audiences at the time from various national, cultural, racial, ideological, and individual perspectives. The graphics themselves also reflect the evolving nature of different medium
